A deadly riot in which 5 colonists were killed in Boston in 1770 after an angry mob gathered around British soldiers/tax collectors Boston Massacre
one sided information meant to influence one's opinion, such as Paul Revere's engraving of the Boston Massacre that increased colonists' hatred towards the British propaganda

why the colonists developed their own representative governments, had self government.... Britain was too far away to keep tight control (salutary neglect)
